Her 2018 so far:

After the incredible heights of 2017, this year has been a frustrating one for Raso.

The young forward led Portland Thorns to the NWSL Championship in 2017 and quickly became a fan favourite after racking up six goals and three assists.

She returned to Australian shores on loan with Brisbane Roar for the 2017/18 campaign and would collect another piece of silverware - leading the club to their third Premiership.

However, injury has been niggling away at Raso all the while. She sustained an injury to her left knee while playing for Roar and then suffered a lateral collateral ligament tear on her right during the AFC Asian Cup in April.

That sidelined Raso for eight weeks and has restricted her impact for the Thorns to just four appearances this season as she just recently returned to action.

A speedy winger, who can also play as a fullback, Raso has a knack for beating players for pace and will look to make up for lost time when she takes the field for Australia at the Tournament of Nations.
